is it a bomb?
I'm sorry I'm so politically ignorant, i feel I've completely missed the point. But from the other positive comments id really like to understand.

The work is beautiful. Yet I am angry: This is a battle also due to religious views, a battle that has already lasted DECADES, and you put the tags "pray". Seems almost cynical.
So much suffer, such less dialogue.

A battle due to religious view?
It's all political.
Israelies are occupying Palestinian land and have been abusing International law for the last 5 decades.
USA, our current superpower, and the UK condones this behavior!
It's nothing but a massacre over in a Gaza.
Please rethink how praying is almost cynical. For many, it's the most powerful tool.

I said it's partly religious. Can you truly deny it? Of course the politics abuse it to tighten the will and it has always been due to politics.
Anyway, my point is I find it cynical to conclude it with #pray when it hasn't helped for roughly half a century. I know it not your intention but I can't help to perceive it as so weak while your work is so strong :( Sorry, I wouldn't have ranted if your work wouldn't have caught me in the most positive way.

I think you might have mistaken me for the artist of this piece.

I guess in the end, something about this piece, both attracted us, and the message is clear. There's an entire population under threat.
It's partly religious? Well the area being sought is nicknamed the Holy Land, and has gone through quite a history of conquers. It's dear to a lot of people. I won't deny that sector. However, of most recent, post WWI, I would deny, religion has anything to do with the current discrimination, and go with people's own greed and lack of humanity. The same way Englishmen settled and wiped out most of the Aboriginal population here in Australia.

For a person's opinion on the effectiveness of prayer. It would have to depend on what side of the spectrum you're on. If you're a Muslim, as the majority of the Palestinian population are, it's the most powerful thing. Prayer isn't just about asking for things to be cleared, but also that justice can be dealt against the oppressors. And if not in this lifetime, then surely in the afterlife.

And if you identify as non-religious, then prayer can easily be perceived as empty, and meaningless. I can't speak for you, but I do hope I haven't come off as angry. Peace

No, you haven't offended me in any way. Yes, I have mistaken you.
Peace.

#pray for the people
#pray for the peace 

I don't personally see anything offensive about the title #pray
it could be anyone of any religion praying for these things.
prayer is a sign of hope and faith, something very important regardless of circumstance.
